McCreery's New Team

Sabah are due to host Queens Park Rangers this week in a friendly designed to promote the London team's sponsors' flights to East Malaysia.

It has not been a particularly enjoyable season for the team nicknamed Hawks or Rhinos as they finished 13th in the 14 team Malaysia Super League and must go into  play off to avoid the drop. Luckily for them KL were so dreadful, no money, no home stadium, they went through the whole season without winning a game.

Their trough came when they were defeated 9-0 by LionsXII at Jalan Besar. One week later they were embarrassed by PKNS 4-0. Those defeats were part of a five match run of defeats including a 1-0 loss against Sarawak in the Borneo Derby.

David McCreery came in and they defeated Negeri Sembilan 3-1!

No doubt the Irishman will be feeling chuffed but how about the man he replaced, Justin Ganai?

While the game with QPR will be a bit of light relief, as well of course being an opportunity to learn from a big team (!), Sabah know the important stuff is the Malaysia Cup which begins in August and the play offs.
